The About Page

For some reason my paragraph and h3 are do not have the padding around it like your's does in the video. I'm not sure where I went wrong in the coding. I'll keep checking but if you have any suggestions on where to look that would be helpful!

Thanks, Johnathan

I FIGURED IT OUT! I didn't have 'px' next to my padding number under the wrapper id tag in the CSS. Sorry to pile all that on you but thank you for helping!
